-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get r
americans of how many people are suffering from the storm and how essential it is for government to help them. and then governor christie, the man mitt romney handpicked to give the keynote address at his convention began to praise president obama. >> obviously i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together and we saw an opportunity to discuss it at length. and then going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks, seeing the president and his concern. he has sprung into action immediately while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation since the weekend and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for the people of our state. >> how do you think that went over at the romney campaign? then it
and the government federal response. what do you think of the federal response now? has it been good? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >>> my message to the federal government, no bur rak eaucracy red tape, get resources where they are needed as fast as possib possible. >> president obama has put disaster relief in high gear as millions across the east coast are in peril. >> the cooperation has been outstanding. >> romney's silence has been deafening. >> would you eliminate aid to fema if you were president? >> as hurricane sandy wreaks havoc across the northeast, first responders, nurses and neighbors have stepped up in tremendous acts of heroism. we'll take a look at these brave men and women tonight. but first we'll bring you the latest on the disaster across the northeast. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the aftermath of sandy is coming into focus and the destruction is heartbreaking. sandy's path devastated miles of shoreline and major communities. officials in nine states are reporting 44 deaths related to the storm. 23 of those here in the state of new york.
an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state.
. unlocking the world's potential. gerri: if you are looking for the next government bailout beneficiary, look no further than the national flood insurance program. that is right. the federal program operating by fema, we have talked about this week. the program already owes $18 billion in taxpayers dollars, much of it was unpaid hurricane katrina battered 2005. only a government program could get away with not paying its bills for seven years, but there you have it. and the wheels keep turning. hurricane sandy will put a new twist on insurance taxpayer dollars. according to "the wall street journal" and the, flood program covers more than 236,000 policies. $54.5 billion. if they exceed their borrowing cap, then they have to ask congress for more money and likely, you bet it is. it encourages building in risky areas. until recently, the government did not care where their customers will be housed in a hurricane zone area. only to see them. only to get blown out in the next one. some people rebuild with federal dollars over and over and over again. today, there are some restrictions on the kind
actually requires some big government. you know, i think that's a very difficult position to be in for romney right now. >> and also the republican party, big government has been vilified in large part. talk about chris christie, first of all, christie has -- i don't think anybody here would want to shortchange the magnitude of the task at hand as far as new jersey and what they've seen in terms of damage and the victims in the state. but in terms of christie's almost zealous support for the the and his actions are you surprised by that? >> no. if you look at the poll numbers and see obama up 11 points in new jersey, it's math on christie's part. the government will be depended on for a lot of money in new jersey to rebuild and recover from this. it makes sense on a bunch of different fronts. there is something important that christie did that is like worth noting and talking about which is, it's an important role in crises like this disasters for politicians to register the sort of emotional seriousness of it, the gravity of it and he did that really well. i was -- i have
and ryan, this is a big government moment, isn't it? this is a moment when, for all that they've said throughout this campaign, mr. ryan, mr. romney, about how they want to eviscera eviscerate government, this is actually a moment when we need government. >> it's a time when pieces of government come together, state, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond party. they're not republicans and democrats in new jersey, they're just americans in need. and those messages, of course, resonate with americans in general. they also happen to be part of what the president and what governor christie is talking about. you know, this is the kind of politics that independent voters, moderates, the gettable, undecided -- >> that tiny number. >> that's what they want to see. they want to see a system that works. and when you have frankly, someone who is brash and outspoken and conservative, working with a president who's supposed to be polarizing, christie and obama working together with a single focus, i think it actually encourages people about politics, about government, and about th
uses of social media. >> dana: government can use it well. she deserves recognition. emily rahimi. >> eric: fantastic. do you have a personal story? something close to home. >> andrea: yes. upper west side of manhattan was okay. the pictures don't do this justice. i have power. the family in pennsylvania no, power. jersey shore where i have a spot, summer place has just been destroyed. you talk to people on the ground there, and they say you wouldn't believe this. these are pictures, actually, from a friend and police officers in margate, new jersey, real pictures in real-time. again, social media was place. we pulled a lot of these from facebook. this is where i get coffee. you can't go anywhere. they won't let you get on parts of the island. it's really, really scary the destruction. i just, my heart goes out to the people of new jersey. >> eric: as time goes, we're getting more and more of the pictures. for a long time, the islands weren't accessible. >> andrea: that is the main street where there is traffic and sidewalk traffic. flooded. the picture before that was a boat that
this is done. >> together surveying the damage. >> a big storm requires some big government. >> the federal government -- >> it seems like common sense. >> -- will not quit until this is done. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey? >> there is no role for a challenger. >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> what does a challenger do in a major disaster? >> governor romney, he's back on the trail. >> we come together at times like this. >> back on the trail in florida. >> we love all of our fellow citizens. >> the question that's dogged him -- >> romney's position on fema. >> -- was about fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> sending disaster management back to the states. >> that's the right direction pb. >> even the private sector. >> that's even better. >> we should privatize everything including fema. >> that's the right direction. that's the right direction. that's the right direction. that's the right direction pb. >> what's your view of the proper
not tolerate a republican governor saying i am not going to accept money from the federal government to help get the lights back on. we will suffer through this as a state. >> right. >> and eschew any help, people wouldn't stand for it. but they will stand for it when the help is about something a little less immediate. if a republican governor said we're turning down this money to fix our schools or unemployment. >> or to build high speed rail. >> or high speed rail. >> internet. >> when the republican governor turns that money down, people don't see the immediate consequences and they don't seem to react. but imagine what they would do if chris christie had stood up and said we're not taking obama's help on this? >> i think it's two things. i think that it's absolutely christie actually being who he is. i don't think that whole idea that he was being totally phony is fair. but i also think that christie has been the attack dog for president obama specifically and so he's kind of effusive praise seemed really shocking on the one hand but i think truth has been such a casualty when it comes
of all the almost of billions of dollars the federal government has spent trying to save those beaches and restore them again and again every few years. this is going to wreak havoc on all that construction of really beautiful beach we've had over the recent years. >> reporter: absolutely. and actually this boardwalk what i'm told is that this boardwalk used stimulus money to restore it. so if this does go under, obviously that's going to be a big challenge to restore it. but a lot of money has been invested into beach restoration and i did ask the governor how much money in terms of oon economic impact that he anticipated in terms of a shutdown because obviously the state government is shut down. nobody is going to work at the state government, and a big mass of businesses here have closed as well. so you can imagine people not working. that's going to be a huge economic loss, but he said the most important thing is that there are no lives lost at this point. he says he'll deal with the economic losses later as long as they can save lives at this point, chris. >> great reporting. grea
as possible. >> i can promise you the federal government will work closely with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> the president will try to avoid red tape and bureaucracy can helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virgini
, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008, when we talked about change i told you, i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long. by lobbyists and special interests and politicians who believe that compromise is somehow a dirty word. by folks who
't drive and for many, there's still no power. it is getting ugly. government doesn't look so good. to the polls, who is going to win? depends who you ask and it dehe pends who gets out and votes. minutes from now, the first friday morning poll, we will bring you the rasmussen numbers. jobs, gas, votes. "varney & company" is about to begin. >> right to the big story, which is the october jobs report. the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. 171,000 jobs were created last month. and the real unemployment rate, which tallies those unemployed and underemployed fell ever so slightly, but holding at 14.6%, the economy is not creating enough new jobs to brighten the employment picture. three years after the recession ended we should be creating at least 250,000 new jobs a month. we are not. the economy remains weak, despite record government spending and an extra 5 1/2 trillion dollars worth of debt. aust austan goolsbee will be joining us, he helped to write the policies,'s no longer with the administration, he hasn't been here for a while, but returning today. here is how it went last time
governments spend on welfare for every household in poverty on average. $61,000. company, and it's one of the major issues in the election, in a country where 9 million people dropped out of the work force, almost 50 million people are on food stamps, the idea that welfare costs $61,000, that's amazing number. >> it's one household and you look at that and say can you imagine? look, you listed off the different statistics out there. this is the biggest reason why, i think, the president had a hard time convincing voters he's turned this economy around. i mean, poverty's rising sharply in his home state of illinois alone. it's a real tough message for him and we're in a record number of spending, so, you look the at the new thing, the problem is not getting fix. the ones getting the big generous pensions are the government workers and he's set up two classes in america, it's the politically connected and those in public offers, i think washington d.c. is one of the richest cities in the world and then, the have-notes are the ones who are out ever government. >> what about the critical v
without power. >> flights are canceled. subways are shut down. >> the federal government is closed. the new york stock exchange is closed. >> we're a week from election day. >> just seven days to go. >> i don't give a damn about election day. >> this storm is not yet over. >> the president has been all over this, and he deserves great credit. >> the election will take care of itself. >> i will tell you, this administration could give a damn less about election day. >> they talked about people having a hard time. >> governor romney did attend an event in ohio. >> why ohio? why choose ohio? >> his campaign describes it as a storm relief event. >> if you have more canned goods, bring them along. >> you need fema and need support. >> fema is about to run out of money. how do you deal with something like that. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> you need fema and you need support. >> and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to st
the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a
% and is a firm believer that the 1% will take care of everything else. he does not believe in government. he does not believe in big government. host: another article in "politico" -- next call comes from mississippi on a republican line. what do you think? caller: i think governor romney would reach across the aisle. president obama definitely has not ever reached across the aisle. he pushed his obamacare through without any thought of what the people of america wanted. he is limiting health care for the older people. he is trying to pretend he really cares about people by going to these flooded areas, and that is not going to wipe out his record of working against the people of america. host: on our independent line, gabriel. caller: i think that overall, the party that would be most willing to compromise and come to a situation no room and discuss the politics that we need to be discussing past to be the democratic party. there are a lot of things that i do not support about the democrats and the republicans. i think overall that in order to get the things done that we need to have done, there
importantly, he works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carlo. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really builds off of carlo's presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health care. that is not necessarily a smarter city. a smarter city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, is a city of the complex group of systems. how do you take advantage of the integration of those systems. this is where we are lacking. take a bu
